Haifa Wahbi says, “My Marriage is a personal issue”
Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi appeared as a guest on a program aired on the Lebanese satellite channel ‘New TV’ and refused to be intimidated by host Nishian, known for intimidating his guests by talking about personal matters.
According to the London based Elaph, on the program, Haifa appeared very relaxed and did not give Nishian the satisfaction of making her reveal personal matters. Haifa had drawn her lines and refused to go beyond them, asserting, “Personal matters are private.”
When asked about the rumor of wedding bells ringing in the near future she simply said that marriage is something that is determined by faith and when the time is right, and she finds the right person, she will gladly announce the news publicly.
Haifa also made it clear to Nishian not to ask her about people whim whom she has had disputes.
Haifa talked about death and how she fears it will take away those she loves most from her. She also stated that she misses her brother who died at the age of 24, and by his death she lost her sense of real security.
The singer also expressed her longing for her hometown in northern Lebanon, Mahrouneh, and how she hopes to visit it in the near future. Haifa refused to talk about the relief efforts she made during the war between Lebanon and Israel, stating that such matters should be kept between an individual and God.
The singer revealed that she greatly admires Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Islamic group Hezbollah, even before Hezbollah went to war with Israel. Haifa describes herself as a very patriotic Lebanese citizen who respects any person who fights for Lebanon.
Haifa said she did not hold any entertainment activities during the war with Israel, and refrained from commenting on other Lebanese singers that held concerts, stating that it was their own prerogative.
